Sergeant Tommy Alexander was shot and killed while responding to a burglary in progress in Richland Parish.

A woman had called 911 to report the sound of breaking glass. Sergeant Alexander, who was the closest officer to the location, responded to the scene despite the call coming from outside of the city limit.

Sergeant Alexander was the first officer to arrive at the scene and began searching the home. The three suspects were hidden inside and opened fire as he was conducting the search. Responding deputies heard the shots as they arrived on the scene and took one of the suspects into custody inside the home. The two other suspects were apprehended a short time later.

On June 15, 2011, one of the suspects involved in the burglary pleaded guilty to second degree murder and was sentenced to life in prison.

Sergeant Alexander had served with the Rayville Police Department for 13 years and had previously served with the Richland Parish Sheriff's Office for seven years. He is survived by his wife and four daughters.
